According to Wikipedia, the observatory first opened to the public on May 18th, 2007.  The observatory tower rises over 400 feet in the air and allows for an amazing view of nearby Fort Knox and the Penobscot River below.

Nearby Fort Knox (no, not the one with the gold) opened for the season back in May.
